Mysterious forces from the East (?) Defeat the United States, won the title of the steepest surface.

Development of long-term concern of high-performance computing HPC Top500.org, announced the latest 41st Global 500 supercomputer ranking.

In the 41 th leaderboards with some changes. November 2012 by the American supercomputer Titan won first place, but this time is to let China’s Tianhe won the 2nd. Milky Way II to 54902.4 TFlops peak performance, coupled 33862.7 TFlops of sustained Linpack performance, replacing the Cray XK7 composed of Titan, the performance, the Titan is almost doubled.


Milky Way on the 2nd from the Chinese National Defense University to develop, with the previous generation of the same plan Tianhe heterogeneous architecture, each node has two Ivy Bridge-based Xeon E5-2692 processor, coupled with three co-processor Xeon Phi A total of 16,000 nodes deployed, the total number of cores total came to 3.12 million, the front end processor is self-developed continent soar processor FT-1500 sixteen-core processor, using the SPARC V9 microarchitecture. Who is also ranked first, but eight months after the Japanese “Jing” supercomputer Tianhe under squeeze (Phase II, the Tianhe-1A), is to use the Xeon X5670 and NVIDIA Fermi architecture Tesla M2050, currently ranked in the first 10.

Second of Titan using AMD Opteron 6274 and NVIDIA K20x formation, is currently the most energy-efficient supercomputer, one of which has a peak performance of 27112.5 TFlops of Linpack with 17590.0 TFlops sustained performance, total power consumption 8.21 MW, efficiency per watt is 2143 Mflops / W.


According Top500.org editor Jack Dongarra said the Milky Way on the 2nd addition to performance, it is worth mentioning that the system chosen by the majority of functioning independently developed continent, including computing software, operating system, front-end processor, the user interface is also dominated by Chinese .
